I just wanted to come back and update this. I took the tombstone that everyone is attributing to Polly HOBDAY and saying she was the wife of Abraham TINKER NOT Edward TINKER (One big mess if you ask me!) Anyhow, I edited the tombstone with my photo editing program to try and bring the wording up closer to see if I could decipher anything from it and here is what I was able to glean from it:

POLLY
Dautr of
__________ & I______
TINKER
Died May
Aged 4

Now, as you can see it appears the person this tombstone belongs to was a TINKER by BIRTH not MARRIAGE!!! There is no way it could belong to Polly HOBDAY that married Edward TINKER Jr NOR Could it belong to the elusive Polly UNKNOWN that married Abraham TINKER either, they both were only a TINKER by marriage, not birth! I cannot see clearly enough to tell if there is another number beside the four but the four shows up clearly, so we may assume this person buried here could have been as young as 4 years old.

I have no clue where this tombstone is even located at, do not know the cemetery or anything about it. It just showed up on Ancestry by some user who I am afraid has mislead many with false information or should I say unsourced information. I aim to track down who it was that Abraham TINKER married if it is the last thing I do lol Hope this helps. For some reason I cannot get this site to update my email address so if anyone replies to my email I will not get it. Please just post here and Ill make it a habit to check back often and will answer as soon as I can!
